5 Reasons For

Bosch Vacuum Cleaners Have Good Reviews

Bosch has good average reviews for its low maximum input power vacuums as well as across its entire vacuum range compared to other brands.

A Hard Floor Cleaning Performance Class

The Bosch GL40 has a better hard floor cleaning performance class than most low maximum input power vacuums that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. This vacuum has an A hard floor cleaning performance class, whereas most low maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago have a C hard floor cleaning performance class.

An A hard floor cleaning performance class is in fact the best hard floor cleaning performance class amongst all vacuum cleaners of a similar spec and age to the GL40.

A D hard floor cleaning performance class is the worst hard floor cleaning performance class across similar types of vacuum.

Chart Edit

Fairly Large Dust Capacity

Across all the vacuum cleaners of this age and spec the dust capacities range from 0.1L to 100L, and the average dust capacity is 3.8L. At 4 liters, the Bosch GL40 has a quite large dust capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec vacuums that are a similar age to the GL40.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

The Bosch GL40 does not have a brush tool. Most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that came out more than two years ago also do not have a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in alternative vacuums which also have a brush tool including the Bosch BGL35MON[plb_2562130_price].

Only Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum is Dry, which is the most frequently supported cleaning type on vacuum cleaners of this spec and age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative Dry vacuum cleaners currently available including the AEG Vampyr CE PW24TRE+[plb_2495204_price], or the Bosch BGL35MON[plb_2562130_price] which is cheaper.

Not Cordless

The Bosch GL40 is not cordless, although it is worth noting that most of the other vacuum cleaners of this type and age are also not cordless.

If you would prefer a vacuum cleaner that is cordless then you might want to look at the Hoover Unplugged UNP300R[plb_2665459_price], or the Dyson V6[plb_2981497_price] which also has a higher rating.

4 Other reasons to consider the Bosch GL40

Average Operating Radius

At 10 meters, the Bosch GL40 has a fairly standard operating radius compared to most of the other vacuum cleaners of a comparable type and age to the GL40.

We compared this vacuum cleaner to all the other 10m operating radius vacuums and we think cheaper vacuums such as the AEG Vampyr CE PW24TRE+[plb_2495204_price] is also worth considering.

Vacuums with a bigger operating radius that might be worth considering include the Samsung CycloneForce[plb_2592379_price] (10.5m).

Average Noise Level

With a noise level of 75 decibels, the Bosch GL40 has a relatively standard noise level compared to most of the other vacuums that have been available for a similar time to the GL40.

If you would consider a vacuum cleaner with a louder noise level then you might want to look at the AEG Vampyr CE PW24TRE+[plb_2495204_price] (81dB and cheaper).

Released Over Two Years Ago

Bosch released the GL40 over two years ago.

Average Weight

With a weight of 4.5 kilograms, the Bosch GL40 has a fairly standard weight compared to most of the other low maximum input power vacuums that were released more than two years ago.

If you are not bothered about having a heavier weight then you might also want to consider the AEG Vampyr CE PW24TRE+[plb_2495204_price] (4.8kg) which is also cheaper.
